Your Rights at Work

Working people in America have rights to safe, healthy and fair conditions at work. There are many laws about these rights.  But sometimes employers break the law. 

In the United States, we have laws that say NO discrimination based on:


Age







Disability




Sex





Pregnancy






Skin Color






Religion





Who You Love




What do you think about these laws?  Have you experienced discrimination at work?  Please click "Comments" to answer.  If you want to read more, you can visit the AFL/CIO website: http://www.aflcio.org/issues/jobseconomy/workersrights/

  17. Other companies, which have easy jobs, like to not hire the forein black people. They like to hire them to do the hard jobs. This is what I see and I know.

  18. I think that this laws are good because all the people are equal, and the important is that the people in USA understand the differents cultures and they respect about that and the rights that the workers have.

  19. I agree with the law in this country because it is a protection to the people. None can be descriminated by their skin color or their age.

  20. I think that this discrimination is very good. Because we're the human. We aren't animals. It dosn't metter for us about the skin collor, desebility, age, sex, religion, or pregnancy. We care only who we love. We dosn't think at your work or anywhere. We have to think that we are the human. We want to live in the world, have family, have children, have healthy in family. For me i think like that.

  21. I think discrimination will not stop in the whole world even in the UNITED STATES. In reality, we are free to have opinion but we still have discrimination.

    for example , the United states is the first of free and democrtic nation in the word .
